I just finished reading Insurgent by Veronica Roth. I liked the book. It was an easy read and had some exciting moments, but I am not as impressed with this series as I am with other YA books that I have read. That being said, I am still interested in reading the next installment in the story.
Tomorrow I will be starting Horns by Joe Hill. This book was recommended by a friend. He is Stephen King's son, so I have pretty high expectations for his writing. I wonder if writing skill runs in families?
What are you reading? Have you read either of these books? What did you think?

Check out other writers on Alex Cavanaugh's blog.
From an NPR story remembering Tom Clancy:
Clancy didn't mince words when he talked to would-be writers. "If your objective is to write a book, get a computer and write the damn book," he told members of the military at a 2004 writing workshop. "Yes, you can do this if you try hard enough. It's a lot easier than you realize it is."
Seems like good advice to me. I already have the computer. Now I just need to "write the damn book."
RIP Tom Clancy.
